SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL SAVE A TIGER MONTH

WORLD NEWS REPORT

For most of us, when we think of tigers the scene that comes to mind is Malaysia's tropical forests or India's grasslands, not a backyard dog kennel in Oklahoma. That is, however, exactly where the two tigers rescued this month by the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park were found. The tigers will join 173 others on the 54 acres in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.Park Entertainer Joe Schreibvogel, also known as Joe Exotic hopes that this September, designated National Save the Tiger Month, he will be able to raise awareness about the dire state of tigers in the world. "The public is blind to the problem of tigers and how endangered they really are." He says. As the human population grows at a rapid rate and poaching for the illegal sale of skins and bones continues, the number of tigers in the wild grows dangerously low. The world's largest cat is predicted to be extinct within ten years.
